Hunting preserves open for business
By Dick Nelson

I'm willing to bet my favorite fishing cap that sometime this past weekend you heard one or more comments on how fast summer slipped by. You may have even commented on it yourself. That’s just the way it is when Labor Day rolls around - even though the autumnal equinox is still three weeks away.
